Hello,

Does anyone know of an easy way to make text blink, or change color, in fortran?  Just an example of one will be fine.


Thanks

Fortran has no notion of color!

So the answer depends on where the text going: web, screen, image, ps file, typo print etc.
Each category should be futher detailed and so on.

It has _nothing_ to do with fortran. From fortran POV it's just text output.
The recipient will interpret parts od the text as color control.
